NEED SECOND OPINION: WTB H23A1 OR REBUILD?

Hey what up fellas. i just recently bought a 93 prelude SI. The problem with the prelude is that its leaking oil and burning it. I know this cuz first of all the whole motor itself is soaked in oil from the valve cover seal to the bottom. And i know its burning it cuz white bluish smoke comes out at a stop and when i start goin i fill up the street with a BIG mushroom cloud. lmao. But seriously i do! So i figured that the valve seals are no good along with the head being warped. Anyways due to the fact that i got the car REALLY cheap i come up with two different directions. I can either rebuild this motor or buy another used one with less miles on it. This motor currently has 166k miles. so my question is how much am i looking at on buying another h23a1? or should i just rebuild the one that i currently have?
Wouldn't it be cheaper to get another motor?

Re: NEED SECOND OPINION: WTB H23A1 OR REBUILD?

Well i had the same problem and i bought a F22 SOHC VTAK lolz and yeah biiig mess up. Rebuild the H23, then once you get that done if you wanna do something fun get another H23 and start on a Boosted H23 =] what i plan on doing now.... as soon as i can get mine rebuilt...

The question on Cheaper well it depends on what kit you piece together to rebuild with i plan on HP stuff, so i cant just get some bolt-ons and have some fun.

Re: NEED SECOND OPINION: WTB H23A1 OR REBUILD?

I know you didn't mention it, but if you have no intentions of going the FI route, and you want a little more power, an H22 swap is always an option.

If he decides he wants to go N/A, an H22 will probably give him more power.

Re: NEED SECOND OPINION: WTB H23A1 OR REBUILD?

The blue-top is the ACTUAL H23VTEC that Honda put in the Accords right? I'm assuming it probably wouldn't be that easy to find.

Re: NEED SECOND OPINION: WTB H23A1 OR REBUILD?

with the connection that i currently have, i found one for 950. it comes with intake manifold, distributor, VTEC solonoid, power steering pump, exhaust manifold, alternator, t-body, fuel rail, injectors, all needed sensors, and tranny. for an extra 400 i can get an m2b4 h22 lsd tranny.

ok cool. well pretty much this car is my DD and i dont think i'll be doing major mods to it other than the simple bolt ons like cold air intake and exhaust. I would like some power but i have another car for that ( i wont mention it cuz its banned here) lol. but anyhow you think getting another h23 will be a better route and be cheaper than rebuilding the one i have, correct?

Re: NEED SECOND OPINION: WTB H23A1 OR REBUILD?

The dyno you saw of an H23 putting out more power/tq than an H22 was either an H23 with major work done to it, or the blue-top we've been speaking about. A regular H22 vs a regular H23, H22 wins.

Oh ok. so its obvious that the h22 vtec cost more by a few hundred than the h23, right? what would the total cost of the h22 vtech swap be for a 93 prelude? just wondering cuz maybe for a few hundred dollars difference i might be willing to bust out the credit card. and go for a very decent h22 swap than getting another h23.

FYI.... this car is just a DD but maybe way down the road (1-2 yrs)when funds are more managable i will put serious mods to it.


THANKS FOR THE INFO FELLAS. as you can tell i know very little about imports. i have a 01 z28 camaro and i love it but also i love imports and respect them. prior to the camaro i was goin to get an rsx but it was sold to someone else.

Re: NEED SECOND OPINION: WTB H23A1 OR REBUILD?

I would definitely say go for the H22. You get a higher redline (7200 compared to the 6500 of the H23), more HP (190 compared to the 165 I think of the H23), plus VTEC, which sure, there is a lot of hype around it, but it's just so damn cool. If it were me, I would go the H22 route.

Re: NEED SECOND OPINION: WTB H23A1 OR REBUILD?

Then you just need the H22 ECU (P13) and the correct wiring harness and everthing else should bolt up.

oh ok thanks man...but wait some dude from another forum did the swap and i asked him what he needed to do the swap and he said that he just needed the ecu (p13), the same tranny, and used the same wiring from his old lude and also he had someone wire up the vtec which is like 3-4 wires. can i get away with the same set up?
